Not too hard, but not for those looking for a stole. The hike is about three miles up and back into the wilderness. There is a mild amount of actual climbing (leg work only, no hand pulling). Be sure to hike smart; lots of water, sun protection, proper shoes, etc.

I hemmed and hawed about which, of the thousands of hikes, to do during my one-day visit in Sedona. This trail did not disappoint. First, any trail in Sedona with views is going to be stunning. Half the time, I didn't know which rock formation I was looking at, but my jaw dropped nonetheless. Here's what I was looking for... More

About 1 and 1/2 miles, located in the village of Oak Creek. Signs for the parking lot right of the main highway. Check out the ranger station not too far out of town toward the interstate.

Little Horse Trail is great. It takes you to Chicken Point and all along the way you see Chapel Rock and the wonderful red rocks around the Chapel. It is a moderate hike and ends with dramatic views.

A great hike to a scenic overlook. Probably my favourite hike, because of the variety of vistas you experience along the way, and it was not too difficult for a person (like me) with bad knees. We took some wonderful photos.

We're not accomplished hikers but this trail was well within our abilities. Nice views along the way, but the seriously great view comes at the end. We went a little past Chicken Point on the Broken Arrow trail...not very far along you'll come to another stupendous viewpoint. Was a little annoyed by the mountain bikers and Pink Jeeps, but they...

Climbed this in half the time most reviews state in their descriptions. It's actually a great trail to run down if interested. Views on the top are OK, but views from the top are awesome.

Red Rock pass required. Toilets in parking lot. Located on the eastern side of Sedona off the 179. As we were hiking Cathedral Trail I overheard a woman saying she had hiked this trail and it was spectacular. I went the next afternoon and have to agree with her. The panoramic views during the entire hike were gorgeous. We hiked... More

I was only in Sedona for two days in mid December. The ranger at the entrance to the Coconino Forest highly recommended this hike and the West Fork trail in Oak Creek Canyon. To park one's car and do this hike (the entrance to Little Horse trail is in the overlook just before the turnoff to Back of Beyond road),... More
